Dr. Alexander Cole

Alexander Cole, DVM

Dr. Alexander Cole graduated from the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997, a fact he won’t let us forget by constantly wearing purple and gold. In his many years of veterinary practice, he has run the gammit of experience variety. He has worked in an exotics only practice
in New Orleans, he has done surgical device testing, he has worked for two different zoos, and most recently he has been in small animal private practice. Dr. Cole has been affiliated with SPCA Florida for a little over two years, both in a full-time capacity and performing surgery on a relief basis. Dr. Cole served in the United States Army National Guard.

In his free time Dr. Cole enjoys singing and dancing, stemming from his formative years when he toured with Duran Duran in the mid-eighties. He has recently been contacted to perform the lead in an off-Broadway production of “Mr. Clean: The Musical” which will showcase his talents and freshly shaved, shiny bald head. The plays writer/director Spinderella (of Salt-n-Peppa fame) reminisces about Dr. Cole from her early days as a DJ opening act for Duran Duran: “Of course, we didn’t call him Dr. back then, but he had raw, natural talent, something that can’t be taught in college. When I started this project, I wrote it specifically with him in mind. He just has this clean, soapy aura about him. Plus he shaves his head!”.

Dr. Cole shares his house with his soulmate, Missy and some number of kids, there are just so many that they are sometimes difficult to keep up with. And many animals. Lily is a Bosta-wawa (half Boston Terrier, half Chihuahua) that he rescued from SPCA Florida in 2013. Cooper is a Boston Terrier that was rescued from Hillsborough animal services. Fury the Guinea pig lives upstairs in his sons room, Ender the bearded dragon is downstairs. George, Crash, Lyrical Gangster, Han Solo, Priscilla and Mishell are tortoises that have their own paddock. Pyp is an
orphaned crow that shares the lanai with several finches. And last but not least, Noodle, Dumpling ad Nugget are chickens that have a portable coop in the back yard.
